Ornaments for Halloween-or any day! I’m trying to think up another costumed kitty that would go with the others, but I’m drawing blanks. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Hanging Out With Chickens

This year’s spring and summer rain really hindered our garden this year. The soil was so wet, that under the squash and pumpkin plants mushrooms were growing! Anyway, we decided to let the chickens have the run of the garden, so they can clean out the beds and we can get ready for next time.

Of course the chickens were more than happy to oblige! Going right for the beds, laying their eggs in them, and kicking up dirt! I only asked that they leave the marigolds and nasturtium alone. _MG_6049

We also had to make sure we covered the potato area with chicken wire. Still holding out hope that the potatoes will get a bit larger than cherry tomatoes. =P_MG_6062

Anna picked a marigold for her hair, so I took a quick portrait of her by the sunflowers.

Trick or Treat! 65 Days Until Halloween!

Out trick or treating, these two weren’t sure if they wanted to walk up to the old house on the hill. Do you think they ended up going?
